Should i be freaking out?!!

Our wedding is less than four months away
and there are still much to do!
Should i be freaking out?!

We have yet to meet with the venue to talk about the food, drinks and everything in between.  I kinda of have a lot of things in my mind about what i want and what i want things to look like including decor! Since we are doing a package, our choices are not that much however we do need to choose various things like cocktail and other details.  I am completely excited about doing all this stuff.  When we finally get to it. Maybe next month.

Our invitations are going out this month (by the end of the month).
Mr. Pancakes and his peeps have yet to meet about their suits (and i keep telling him i am watching him!).  I will not meddle at all! I want him dressed, colour coordinated and at the church looking handsome!
We are still looking at honeymoon locations! I so want to go to Los Cabos.  It's been a fantasy of mine for so long.
I have yet to do my hair/make-up consultations!
I don't have any kind of music, ceremony/reception or otherwise.

Most brides will be freaking out but i am taking everything in strides!
Most of the brides on all these wedding blogs are completely over zealous and organized for my kind.
I am an easy going bride so where most people might be freaking out, i am just taking one task at a time and hoping to have everything done in 100 days!

Like the sign says i know when to keep calm and carry on.
And i hope i will know when to now panic and freak out!

Was there every a time when you freaked out during your wedding planning days?
When do you freak out?
When was the last time you freaked out?

Thanks for following my blog! :) I think you've got a great attitude by just staying calm, because freaking out only makes things worse! Except for a few rough moments, I managed to stay calm throughout the planning process, and it made everything so much easier.

Stay focused and keep at it. I'm sure you are doing a great job so far. Try to prepare as much as you can now and let others know your plans so that you are less stressed on the actual day. Good luck

Sounds like you're doing just fine to me! I think I was the same best friend and I got married a month apart and even though her wedding was after mine, she was always like 5 steps ahead of me with the planning and kinda freaked out over a lot. As long as you're happy and you're doing it the way you want, I bet it's all going to come together wonderfully! :)

You will do great and your wedding day will be beautiful!

I also don't buy into the whole wedding has to be a stressful time line. :) I got engaged and married all within the space of a month and a couple days and honestly wasn't stressed at all. We just enjoyed ourselves.:)

I freaked out when the invites were out and we weren't getting responses. And then when we got like 50 at once. Otherwise, I just kind of didn't care. I mean, I loved my wedding, don't get me wrong. I just wasn't very worked up about it. As long as my husband showed up!

Miss Pancakes said...

Thank you ladies for all the lovely comments..and i agree Stephanie..."as long as my husband showed up!"

I did my best to not freak out, but there were moments when i just headed to the gym to calm my nerves. Even on the day of, the attitude helped up... even when one of my bm's left her shoes on the shuttle. It made for a great blog post after the fact, but my calm demeanor freaked my ladies out a bit LOL. All the practice during the planning to stay calm really paid off! :)
